    Worked as a professional M.D.
    His name was William Williams.
    His poems are often very short and simple.
    One poem, in its entirety, reads: 'so much depends/upon/a red wheel/barrow/glazed with rain/water/beside the white/chickens.'
    His poetry has often been ridiculed and parodied.
    He pissed off big-shot poets like T. S. Eliot by using everyday language in his writings.
    He would give unsolicited medical advice to his friends.
    He was a full-time doctor.
    He continued his medical practice even after becoming a famous poet.
    His poems were experimental and influential.
    He didn't think American writers should simply imitate European ones.
    He thought a lot of literary people were snobs and posers.
    He had the sense to use his middle name and not just go by William Williams.
